In addition to the many faculty, staff, and students in attendance, there were a number guests from the SU Institute for Veterans and Military Families, including J.

The celebration included cake and refreshments, a commemorative frame on which guests wrote messages of thanks, a display in which guests could honor their veteran(s) by name, as well as thank you cards that Falk College will deliver to the VA Hospital.
